And as wonderful as it is, it does not offer the same experience as being a member of a collegiate chapter.

In short, you're looking at a future that might not happen versus a 'present' that already is what you want, despite being across the country.
Amen amen!

With the added benefit that if you don't actually attend the school and do matriculate elsewhere (or not enroll in a college with your chapter), you will be considered an alum of that group and can join any alum group of your org that you live near. So you will get BOTH experiences, though the college one will be virtual.
